Senior Financial Services Regulatory Lawyer - FCA/FSA/ASIC experience required - Based in London (or if preferred the UAE) - Outstanding Career Opportunity.  

We are working closely with a Partner who is in charge of developing the financial services regulatory practice for a prestigious Global law firm. This is the perfect opportunity for an ambitious lawyer as it offers a solid platform with plenty of high-quality work but is still in the early stages of implementing an international growth strategy.  There is no logjam here - scope for progression is particularly good with Partnership a very real prospect in due course.

The role offers:

  • High-quality Financial Services regulatory work;
  • Global remit with opportunity to work on drafting legislation in key markets;
  • Exposure to clients in the fast-growing Fintech sector;
  • Lead role in client relationships, matter management and developing more junior lawyers;
  • The autonomy to build relationships and execute work;
  • Prospects for career development and progression through to Partnership;
  • Option to be based in London, Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

In order to be considered you will need substantial experience of financial services regulatory matters including familiarity with FCA/FSA in the UK and/or ASIC in Australia.  It is unlikely that the role will suit anyone with less than four years’ relevant experience with the ideal range likely to be around five to eight years’ pqe.  The firm is happy to consider applicants with experience from a law firm, a financial services institution and/or from one of the regulators.  UK/Irish or Australian qualification and experience essential.
